Speed Networking at MakeOffices at the Loop

Posted October 26, 2017 by Manu Aggarwal

At MakeOffices, there are plenty of opportunities available for you to meet your neighbors and grow your network. In fact, that’s one of the reasons to join a coworking space. However, our downtown Chicago coworking space in the Loop took it one step further.

On October 18th, MakeOffices at the Loop hosted its first Speed Networking event, where participating members across industries and areas of expertise, including advertising software-as-a-service providers, digital agencies, law firms, IT services, and real estate brokerages among others each pitched their products and services to an audience of about 75 members.

Each company gave a presentation follow by a lively questions and answer session. Conversations and connections continued at happy hour complete with manhattans & martinis. The event was a great way to break the ice and learn more about the interesting work our members do. It was also a business development opportunity, where members could gain valuable knowledge and connect with other companies that could help them in the future.

All in all, it was a successful evening where our members refined their pitches, made new connections and business partners, all over a few drinks in a relaxed environment. Look for similar speed networking events across our Chicago coworking spaces coming soon.
